Know someone who loves electronics but doesn’t know the difference between an XBee, a soldering iron, and a SMA to uFL/u.FL/IPX/IPEX RF Adapter Cable? Want to buy the perfect gift but don’t know whether your Maker friend is a BeagleBone fan or a Rasp Pi devotee? Just a fan of Bruce Yan’s incredible design? If you’re any of these, or more, buy an Adafruit Gift Certificate – the perfect cyber-present for the electronics geek in your life.
The all-in-one Internet of Things service from Adafruit you know and love is now even better with IO+. The ‘plus’ stands for MORE STUFF! More feeds, dashboards, storage, speed. Power up your Adafruit IO with the $99 pass for 1 year of the IO+ subscription service, upgrade code sent via email!
When you don’t need non-contact or thermal imagery, this basic digital thermometer in Fahrenheit will serve your temperature-checking needs. Stick under the tongue or armpit and hold for about 40 seconds until the thermometer beeps and displays the temperature. The thermometer will automatically turn off if no longer in use.
This is the 6mm Wide Angle Lens, an add-on for the Raspberry Pi High Quality Camera. It has a wide field of view and a variety of uses, like CCTV applications, or of course, cat photos. Includes a thumbscrew to quickly and easily assemble onto the HQ Camera Board.
This is the 16mm 10MP Telephoto Lens, an essential for the Raspberry Pi High Quality Camera. It has a wide field of view and a variety of uses, like CCTV applications, or of course, cat photos. Telephoto lenses are great for distance shots – especially good when you need to take photos or videos of far away cats. Includes a thumbscrew to quickly and easily assemble onto the HQ Camera Board.
Snap, snap! There’s a new official camera board released by the Raspberry Pi Foundation!
The Raspberry Pi High Quality Camera is the latest camera accessory from Raspberry Pi. It offers higher resolution (12.3 megapixels, compared to 8 megapixels), and sensitivity (approximately 50% greater area per pixel for improved low-light performance) than the existing Camera Module v2, and is designed to work with interchangeable lenses in both C- and CS-mount form factors. Other lens form factors can be accommodated using third-party lens adapters.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
